RE: Quit Smoking
I was against cigs. Then i decided i wanted to know what my dad liked about them. It was not sweet,so i figured i did something wrong,but i did stop then. Then a few months later,i saw a friend smoking ,and it was a different brand so i took it to try if it was better than what my father smoked. Since then me and my friend used to smoke together 1~3 times a week,then it escalated. I dont think it was peer pressure,because i always liked smoking alone better

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

RE: Quit Smoking
I don't rember why I started, but I do remember why I kept smoking.

It got me kicked out of the Witnesses. Money well spent, at the time. Now though I need to cease as the price is too high.

Smoking like a chimney lately while waiting to figure out how to get these ecigs. xD

Just to remind people, this is the support section of the forum for those looking for support/advice/guidance on matters and not a debate arena. Lets try and keep it that way. Smile

Again, it could be that those people that give up on ecigs just didn't find the right setup. It's not easy to do because not many people know what is available. If there were more shops on the high street selling a variety of types it'd be a lot easier and, even so, they are doing incredibly well.

Regarding the numbers and how successful ecigs are at getting people to stop smoking, read the forums. The stats I posted show that 31% of people who tried ecigs quit smoking within 6 months; that says it all! I would hazard a guess that this figure would have been far higher if all those that tried them knew what was available. I bet most of them used the cigalikes available in supermarkets and they are the worst type. In my case, success was immediate. And actually we know what is in the eliquid and it is known to be far far safer than smoking.

Maybe addictions aren't healthy, but there are many things that we do that aren't healthy. I enjoy my addiction and it's far far healthier than my old one; that's all I care about.

By the way, what books are you talking about?

If eating sugar bothered me, then I would find an alternative Wink

I wasn't trying to argue about anything, I was just commenting on things Blush
I just mentioned your first cig to say that the reason people keep on smoking is not because it is enjoyable or because it helps them relax, just saying that I don't see it exactly as an enjoyable experience that deserves to extend to an enjoyable addiction.

As for e-cigs, you're right I guess, it's better if they at least don't smoke.

The books are in Greek but I could check some sources and recommendations (in English) I've seen in there if you're interested.

Peer pressure doesn't work exactly like that. It doesn't have to do with whether you are smoking alone or not. The pressure lies in the fact that you subconsciously feel the need to "fit in" and even if you convince yourself that it is your choice and you are doing it for yourself, you may not realize the influence of peer pressure in your choices.

RE: Quit Smoking
I never smoked to fit in. There was a time i had no friends who smoked(my friend stopped),and they encouraged me to stop.
Most of my friends still try,but they know its useless. I think you need to have the will to stop,if people try to make you stop against your will it will never work. And that will is what i lacked till now

I don't really like going outside.
